LAARK News You Can Use
Contesting and DX
This week we're a little light, but there is one event for all to participate:
CQ WW WPX Contest, CW: 0000Z, May 28 to 2359Z, May 29 http://www.cqwpx.com/rules.htm
We have new officers, they candidate list was long and the campaigning was intense. I for one was extremely exhausted at all of the ads we received. The vote was close, but in the end we have new leadership and we should all provide them with all the support they need to make the club successful:
Kevin Braby - KW5KB - President
John Eagin - KG5BCW - Vice President
John Hill - KF5VO - Treasurer
Ron Ford - KF5OMH - Secretary
Scott Boutwell - KG5RJR - Board seat
Field Day 2022
LAARK will be participating in the ARRL 2022 Field Day this year. It is on the 25th and 26th of June. It will not be at Stewarts Creek Park this year, but at one of The Colony's municipal buildings. The address is 6301 Main Street in The Colony. There will be plenty of room for the tower, fan dipole and possibly some other antenna's, but mainly a lot of room for separation of equipment and antenna's. We'll be operating at least 2 stations, one SSB and one CW, but there may be others that will join us with their equipment. Please go to the following document, and enter information pertinent to your participation.
